opponent talk about the issues that are before the american peel right now, primarily being the economy. they were not given the opportunity to do that. and the reason they weren't is because of the way joe biden behaved during the debate. i think he's going to cost the obama campaign long-term among undecided voters. >> any obligation here, bill, on the part of the moderator? i hate to pick on the moderator but you are supposed to make sure people can at least hear when they say. >> i don't think she's biased, i think some people say that, but i much prefer the first format because i found disconcerting part what dan said, but partly they were debating with martha raddatz, one person, rather than debating with one another and the american people. if you look at the split screens, they weren't looking at each other. i would rather the issues to be debated be decided less by one newspaper person or one tv reporter than by the candidates themselves. >> it's not a press conference, it's a debate. >> right. much more on this week's vice presidential debate when we come back. plus a look ahe
. in all three battleground states, voters by double digits believe the economy is getting better compared to the numbers back in july. >> and mark halperin, that may be the big takeaway from this poll. the race is getting much closer. nobody can predict what's going to happen. if you look at a big friend, thoug trend, you've got to look at a lot of americans in these swing states are looking at the economy saying things are getting better. >> it's clearly a huge factor and yet, obviously, the debate from denver is also a huge factor. i think, you know, we look a lot at the margin of error, and these numbers aren't shifting all that much. what's key is in a lot of the states the president is below 50. that's a danger sign for him. the economy is getting better. it all goes back to the electoral college. you play with the numbers, look at these polls, romney still has to win six or seven or maybe eight of the battleground states in order to take this. and right now he's not there. but he's in a better position clearly than he was a week ago. the economy getting better has caused romney to s
this speech is about. that's the big choice that the american people have on the economy. you've got these crippling deficits, anemic jobs. you've got romney's plan to reverse that. on foreign affairs, you've got a failed foreign policy. yes, they've done more drone attacks, which is good. yes, osama bin laden is dead, which is good. but whether you deal with russia, china or throughout the broader middle east, you have a disaster. we saw that in the killing of the american ambassador in benghazi and a fundamental misunderstanding. >> i want to get to some other issues. i want to get to larger question, which is what is a romney foreign policy? what is going to be different about it than president bush's? less sort of the quote unquote freedom agenda? >> what you're going to have is a foreign policy that's been in the bipartson tradition of strength from kennedy and beyond. one that believes you need a strong economy. you need to have leadership. america's better off and the world is better off when america leads as "the washington post" editorial said today. there's a vacuum in syri
for the failure, the misery that this economy is right now and lay out a plan going forward. and i think mitt romney is just going to keep doing that. barack obama can spin and his surrogates can say some of the things stephanie was saying and they can run all these ads they're distractions and try to win this race outside of those debates. but these debates are important because you have two people unfiltered going back and forth on their ideas and their records, and so far, governor romney i think has laid out a pretty compelling case and the president's has been pretty weak. >> so far, he's certainly winning the battle of the debates but there are two more to go and a lot to play for. thank you very much. >> good to be with you, piers. >>> coming up, the actress under fire for supporting mitt romney. why she's facing racist attacks. stacy dash talks to me exclusively. here she comes.

they provided points and issues on zingers and economy and debate decorum. >> mr. vice president, i know you're under a lot of duress to make up for lost ground but i think people would be better served if we don't keep interrupting each other. >> with regard to social security, we will not, we will not privatize it. if we listened to governor romney and congressman during the bush years, man where all those seniors would be now if there money had been in the market. their ideas are old and their ideas are bad and they eliminate the guaranty of medicare. >> here he is the problem. they got caught with their hands in the cookie jar turning medicare into a piggybank for obamacare. >> usually when there is a crisis we pull together. we pull together as a nation. as i said, even before we knew what happened to the ambassador the governor was holding a press conference, was holding a press conference. that is not presidential leadership. >> this is becoming more troubling by the day. they first blamed a youtube video. now trying to blame the rome rom ticket for making this an issue. with you shou
in discretionary spending cuts will drive the economy back into recession and cost 2 million jobs. on the other hand, it would go a long way to reducing the budget deficit. even by washington standards, that sounds important. to discuss the fiscal cliff, we have a panel of four budget watchers. format today will have each of our panelists speaking for about four minutes and i will ask questions and we will turn it over to the audience and give you a chance to ask questions. we have people watch it on c- span and the web. if you're not in the room and have questions, send them to public affairsaturbn,.org. we will start with donald. >> thanks to everybody for being here and raiding the rain to talk about the fiscal cliff. i will try not to ruin your lunch. we at the tax policy center put out a big report yesterday about the tax component of the fiscal cliff going through various details and what the effects would be on the american household. to want to make five basic points. the fiscal cliff really is bigger attacks point of view. if we remain there for all of 2013, it would be more than $500
when you're looking at what the economy is going to do. >> one of the things alcoa has been able to do, particularly with the ceo, is take aluminum and replace a lot of other different metals, whether it be steel in cars because it's much lighter and therefore you use less gasoline. airplanes because again it produces the gasoline use. by the way, it does construct electricity, maybe not as sufficiently in copper but it is used in china. when you look at a can, you know it is recycled over and over again. the skin of an apple ipad, i mean, aluminum has become the fundament. aluminum has been hit by football hedge funds and we have chinese people producing huge amounts of aluminum. if they would close that and let alcoa come in, then you would see a much better number from alcoa. i'm urning people not to look at the earnings per share. that is not going to be -- what you need to do when look at alcoa is look at the individual forecast that he makes. when you see him as a man of his word, this is the barometer i look at not set up by a particular group of people other than a major compan
on that. so whether it's on the economy, whether it's on leadership, he's now tied with the president. as far as leadership ability is concerned. so i think romney got everything out of that debate and more. >> he certainly did. and if you take a look at -- let me put the numbers back on the screen one more time. earlier this month before the debate, romney was behind the president, the president, 51%, romney, 43%. eight-point difference. now 49% for romney, 45% for obama, a four-point spread. that's a 12-point spread in only, what, three weeks, shall we say? and clearly the major development was his strong performs at that debate. >> you know, wolf, it just shows you that voters are still really weighing the pluses and minuses of these two candidates. what i really need to see, though, to make any judgment about how this is going to really affect the election or how it has affected voters is i need to look in the battleground states, don't you think? you need to look at the battleground state of ohio. you need to look at wisconsin. you need to look at iowa. you need to look at virgin
, spend. it's good for the economy. if you love it, that's all that matters. thank you for joining. everybody, "ac 360" starts now. >>> good evening, everyone. we begin tonight with breaking news. late polling that reads like a battle damage assessment from last week's presidential debate, both nationally and in one battleground state it shows a big swing toward mitt romney. take a look. late this afternoon, there was this latest national pew research poll. governor romney now holding a four point lead among likely voters surveyed october 4th through the 7th, after the debate. that's a b swing from mid-september when president obama was ahead by eight. that was this afternoon. just a short time ago, a poll running in the detroit free press shows the president's lead shrinking to just three points in michigan. mr. obama had a ten point lead there last month. mitt romney's running mate, paul ryan, is in michigan tonight addressing a rally at oakland university in the town of rochester just outside detroit. the question tonight, if the mood of voters is changing here, could it also be
romney is now ahead of president obama in terms of trusting him to do a better job on the economy. how much are the american people just not looking at these numbers or at least questioning their veracity? >> i think that american people are having undoubtably as much difficulty translating and interpreting the numbers as much as the professionals are. the electorate is extremely volatile. much more volatile than any person imagine. with romney's numbers bouncing as much as they did after one debate, that shows people -- i do not think it is an election of committed voters, this will be in election of leaners. they are all swaying up there. connell: a lot of people have not made up their mind. these are big moves. we head into tonight and then next week, can the president use these jobs numbers as an argument that jobs and the economy is improving? >> i think, clearly, vice president biden and mr. obama next week will use these numbers to say things are getting better. the burden will be on the opposition to explain why the economy has been as weak as it has been. i have to say, i give
to turn, now, to the economy and the race for the white house. the nation's unemployment rate dropped to 7.8% in september, bringing it below 8% for the first time in more than 3 1/2 years. as for jobs, 114,000 were created last month. while the numbers from july and august were revised higher by 86,000. so, with just 31 days to go before the election, what impact will this have on the race? it's "your voice, your vote." and our david kerley is in orlando, florida, with the latest. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, bianna. mitt romney is here in florida. this battleground state. and he comes to florida without one of his most potent weapons because that jobs reporter raced the claim that the unemployment rate has been above 8% for nearly four years. that change completely altered the political landscape and narrative of the last week. in virginia, there was no public high-fiving. but the jobs numbers were cheered by supporters of the president. >> the unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest level since i took office. >> reporter: also in virginia, mitt romney's post-debate
the president's debate performance to the improving economy. more on that with mark matthews. >> good morning. >> in san francisco, one sign of an improving economy, shoppers lined up around the block for the opening of the clothing store. >> i feel like we have picked up in the economy. but i don't know. i don't know for the rest of the country. >> the labor department statistics show the rest of the country is also improving 114,000 new jobs added in september. the revised numbers for july and august show 86,000 more jobs than originally reported, taking away a favorite line of mitt romney's stump speech. >> we've had 43 straight months of unemployment above 8%. >> romney supporters are now questioning the new labor numbers. >> i wouldn't bet my mortgage on the numbers being correct. >> but the fact the president's approval rating has been climbing, suggests that people feel more hopeful. >> the more cranes you see around town, it's a sign the economy is boosting. >> it's going to get better. it's stabilizing. >> he's been selling flowers at union square for 66 years. he's not a supporter o
given the economy -- >> that's not even what i'm getting at. >> people feel fundamentally better about the state of the economy. >> did i say i love jack welch? >> forget what jack welch said. i'm talking about people who are trying to say that perhaps people have given up. and if you look into the numbers of the bureau of labor and statistics put out, the number of people who are discouraged and have given up has gone down in the past year by 235,000. and in the past four years, by over 400,000. that number is being skewed out there by those who want to say that the job numbers aren't what they appear to be. long-term unemployment is still very, very high, but those people are still looking. >> the u-6 number for those cognizant. >> coming up -- >> you're right. republicans are in the dumps. you're right. >> no, they're trying to pretend the numbers that they depend on when they're good in their camp. >> you can't have it all. >> are skewed. >> i don't know. if it continues this way, i think republicans can have it all. >> they're not. not going to have it all. >> coming up -- i'm so
of improvement on the economy, closing the gap in most polls. but i want to show you a number. the pew poll shows that 54% of registered voters agree with the phrase doubt that obama knows how to turn the economy around. what do you make of that? >> that's been consistent, and it's been mitt romney's hope. his an state of the economy and whether the president is partially or enough to blame for the bad economy, he's going to lose. that's why you see the president has been launching all the attacks against bain and all the other things he's been doing. so that's been the weakness and the numbers, too, that i'm looking for on the inside the polls are mitt romney's attributes and his ratings among independents because forget whether the polls are skewed for ds or rs, as long as mitt romney keeps winning independents, chances are mitt romney's going to win. in this pew poll, he won independents today, having nothing to do with whether it's skewed one party or the other. that's something to keep your eye on. romney's favorability is moving up, obama's are moving down. mitt romney's winning independen
a million malians from their homes. we noticed a couple of pieces of good news on the u.s. economy. the read was a big jump. hit ago level we haven't seen since september of 2007, before the financial crisis and also, jpmorgan released its quarterly dimon said we believe the housing market has turned the corner. the comments from mr. dimon could be significant. it's been 435 days sibs is country lost its top credit rating. the fourth year running it exceeded the trillion dollar mark. >>> and now, our four story "outfron fourth story. jack kennedy and paul ryan. there are some things that are similar. both young, energetic, vibrant. paul ryan seems to think they have something this common, joe biden though, not so sure. in what you could say say is a vp tradition, this time, the issue was tacks. >> you can cut tax rates by 20% and still preserve these for middle class taxpayers -- >> not mathematically possible. >> it is. it's been done before. >> it has never been done before. >> it's been done a couple of times -- >> it has never -- >> reagan. >> oh, now, you're jack kennedy. >> ronald reag
to talk down the economy to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> mr. romney, of course, saw it a little differently. >> the reason it's come down this year is primarily due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work. >> good try but actually this month, the rate fell because americans were finding work, not because they were dropping out of the labor force. he was right about one thing. >> the american people have a choice. i think in both men we have individuals who cared very deeply about our country and care about the people of america. but we would lead america in very different ways. >> well, that choice was crystal clear on debate night. now, liberal pundits grumbled and groaned over the president' decidedly underwhelming performance behind the podium. let's be honest, i was one of them. i could not believe the president left so many easy opportunities for jabs pass him by. defund big bird? granted the president returned all the jabs the next day. >> when i got on to the stage, i met this
to be in a situation unless the economy picks up very dramatically and there are absolutely no signs that california is going to come to boom any time soon. then, what you are dealing with here is basically a state budget that is anywhere between 10% and 15% out of whack. that the revenues are 10% to 15% below their spending commitments. and that's going to be very, very painful. you're going to see it in a lot of things. but you know, there's -- on the other hand, and there is always another hand in politics, if he's successful and gets this thing passed, he also runs the risk of kind of a volatility. he's basically betting the state's future on a handful, basically, 150,000 california taxpayers, out of 38 million people, that they are going to do well enough to raise all this money that he thinks he's going have coming from this ballot measure. that's a little bit scary, too, particularly because it guarantees local governments $5 billion a year for realignment. a constitutional spending commitment on a temporary tax. that's kind of uncertain, as well. >> belva: we have so many hot issues, we have
a new president. the heart wrenching stories have been a departure from romney's focus on the economy. >> my whole passion is about helping the american people who are struggling right now. >> i thought, wow, here's old moderate mitt. where you been, boy? >> reporter: but democrats including bill clinton say romney has been trying to shift back to the center ever since last week's debate. the obama campaign is pointing to what romney said to "the des moines register" on the issue of abortion. >> there's no legislation with regards to abortion that i'm familiar with that would become part of my agenda. >> reporter: contrast that with what he said at a town hall last year. >> what i would like to see happen would be for the supreme court to say, look, we're going to overturn rowe v. wade and return to the states whether they want to have abortion or not. >> severely conservative positions that got him through the gop primary are still there. now he's trying to cover them up. >> reporter: asked about those comments on abortion, a romney campaign spokeswoman released a statement to cnn sa
